Memorial Gifts & Donations




Paula Kay Mason gained her angel wings on January 11, 2024, after a valiant fight against pulmonary fibrosis. To many, Paula’s life would seem too short, but those of us who were fortunate enough to have her in our lives were blessed enough to be left with beautiful, lasting memories of her bright and wonderful soul. In her 56 years on earth Paula filled her life with more love than some people see in a lifetime.

Paula’s kind and loving heart was instilled into her from birth. Her father, Johnny, and mother, Janie, raised Paula and her two sisters, Denise and Jonie, in small town Maysville, North Carolina with many of the southern traditions and ideals; putting God and their family first.

Growing up in such a small town as Maysville, everyone knows you; a small community filled with kind hearts and more family than you’d think. Paula was raised deeply engrossed in the town, most of which were cousins, aunts, and uncles. Paula frequently visited her mother and sisters in Maysville regularly for both outings and gatherings alike.

Paula is survived by her two sons, Sean (34) and Zachary (32), loving products from her first marriage to Duane Adams.

She is also survived by her loving husband since 2010, James Mason, and Paula’s favorite pet in the whole world a Maltese Yorkie mix named Dexter.

If anything could be said about Paula, it was certainly that being a grandmother, a Mawmaw, was her favorite thing in the entire world. Her older son Sean, and his wife Amanda graced Paula with their granddaughter Charlotte (5). Paula’s younger son Zachary, and his wife Rebekah have blessed Paula with three, soon to be four grandsons: Cain (8), Malachi (6), Jude (3) and the fourth baby boy to be born very soon. Paula absolutely loved spending time with her grandbabies and snuggling them close.

It is a relief for everyone to know that Paula is at rest, and she is no longer in pain. She is in heaven with her father and all the loved ones that have passed before her.

There will be a small service for immediate family members only at this time; however, in July there will be a Celebration of Life to honor Paula, her heart, her memories and all the love that has always surrounded her and will continue to do so in her memory.

In lieu of flowers, Paula’s family humbly asks that loved ones, instead, consider a donation toward her funeral costs. You may donate directly by clicking here or clicking on the Memorial Contribution button to the left. All donations, no matter how big or small, are greatly appreciated during this time of need for her family.

    Paula , I will miss your smile asking me how I am doing. Working with you at the dirt pit were good times. All the drivers adored you and missed you when you were out. Some would even drop off lunch to you from time to time. You would kindly share it with me. You had stocked a cabinet up with goodies telling everyone to help themselves whenever they wanted. I asked why you had so much in there and you replied it's for everyone I don't want anyone to be hungry. You were kind and always thinking of others. Just wanna say you will be missed .

    Paula, there are no words to express how greatly you will be missed. You had the kindest heart and sweetest soul, your laughter was infectious. I will forever remember all the moments we shared growing up, they are priceless. Your time with us was much shorter than we would have liked, but knowing where you are and pain free is very consoling. You always worried about everyone else above yourself, now you can rest......it will take time, we all will be ok. You have raised the sweetest boys who will forever keep your memory alive. I love you to pieces Paula Kay....until I see you again
